Sculpted From Fantasy

Aiguille des Grands Charmoz, French Alps

There’s something special about this formation in the Mont Blanc massif. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but for me it’s just magical. As I was taking this shot I almost felt as if I was looking at a scene from a fantasy novel.

The misty clouds hiding the mountains beyond were the icing on the cake, providing the perfect opportunity to focus solely on the craggy rocks of the Aiguille des Grands Charmoz without any distraction. I couldn’t resist the black and white treatment, and boosted the contrast a bit to really show the distinction between the hard, unforgiving rock faces and the snow that surrounds them.

I think as peaks go it’s probably my favourite in the French Alps. For the time being anyway, I’m sure I have many more to discover! Do you have a favourite peak? Why does it stand out? I’d love to hear from you!

      Haha, I know what you mean. The most present challenge is always the best! I’ve not visited Mt Rainier but I often see photos from that region of the US and it looks fantastic.
